Need More of These
This is better than reading, our history is neglected and needs more exsposure. No good history channels or material available to choose from. Even Netflicks could assemble documentaries on presidential speeches and acts on film, I would watch them, and I am betting alot of other people would too.

The golden era!
Just fascinating! The epitome of the golden era of presidents. No president( maybe except kennedy) had as much love and support as FDR. In fact, the only president to serve more than 2 terms in office.( later limited to 2)This speech really brings on the nostalgia pretty heavy. I am so glad it was able to be captured in the form of video and audio. Imagine the opportunity of hearing Lincoln or other prolific presidents give their speeches... it is too bad the technology was not existent at the time.

XXX-XX-XXXX Begins Here
In this film clip, Franklin Roosevelt signs the Social Security Act and gives a speech about how it will benefit Americans. This has no surprises, but it does have historical value.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
